Your experience could be our strength – become a Trustee and help us beat cystic fibrosis.

A great deal has changed in the 50 years since the Cystic Fibrosis Trust was founded. In 1964 90% of people with cystic fibrosis died before the age of 10. Today there are more adults with the condition than children, and most are in education, training or employment.

But our mission is far from over: still only around half of the people with cystic fibrosis in the UK today will live to celebrate their 40th birthday. That is why we are taking a new strategic direction, fighting for a life unlimited for everyone affected by cystic fibrosis.

Perhaps you have skills to draw on that you’ve honed from your professional life, maybe you have expertise in media, law or finance, or a youthful energy and fresh perspective. Whatever you bring, if you have something to offer, we want you on our team.

As a member of the Board of Trustees, you will have specific statutory duties, such as ensuring that we comply with charity law and company law and that we use our resources responsibly. You will also have oversight of our strategic vision and hold us accountable to our objectives.

Although we are based in London, our community is spread across the UK, and we are keen to reflect that regional diversity on our Board. With virtual meeting spaces, teleconferencing facilities and reasonable travelling expenses available, applicants are encouraged regardless of geographical location.

Lead the journey for a life unlimited.

If you think you can help steer our course as we embark on our exciting new strategic direction towards beating cystic fibrosis for good, please send us your CV, along with a covering letter (maximum of 2 sides) to answering these 3 questions:

  1. Why do you want to be a Trustee for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust?
  2. What skills can you bring to the Board of Trustees?
  3. What do you want to take away from this opportunity?

Closing date for application: 18 December 2015
